Every single fantasy football season, a handful of big-name players drop dud/injury-filled seasons in our laps. While most of the time it is tough to predict these kinds of seasons, sometimes there are signs of risk, signs that outweigh the appeal/upside. But, what about after a player busts (even if busting due to injury)? When should you trust a player again, if ever? That next year?
The truth is, there is no real consistent formula for deciding what fantasy football players deserve second chances, but I can list some of last year’s biggest 2015 fantasy football busts, and together, maybe we can figure what players have the best shot of rebounding to elite-type fantasy football levels.
The following players are listed in order of biggest ceiling value from their currently-diminished value.
There are clearly a few other names worth mentioning here, but these are some of the top-doubted players heading into 2016, and most all are worth acquiring if the price is right, and it should be right in most leagues.
